President Edgar Lungu  has expressed sadness  and  disturbed at the killing of Senior Chief Muchinda of the Lala people of Central Province.

In press statement by the Chief Analyst for Press and Public Relations Cecilia Mulenga to Lusakatimes, the President Lungu said he is shocked by the brutal murder of the traditional leader.

Mr Lungu  said if the assailants were aggrieved they would have sought amicable ways of resolving their differences than resorting to this heinous act.

President Lungu has since conveyed a message of condolences to the royal family and wished them God’s solace and strength.

The President has also wished a quick recovery to the wife of the late chief, who has been hospitalised in Serenje District Hospital for the gunshot wounds she sustained in the shooting.

He  has encouraged the Lala people in Senior Chief Muchinda’s area to remain united as they mourn the traditional leader.

And the President has urged the Zambia Police to work tirelessly to ensure the culprits are brought to book.

“I am disturbed and saddened by the brutal murder of Senior Chief Muchinda. There are better ways of resolving differences, in an amicable manner than resorting to this heinous act. May the Almighty God grant the royal family strength and l also wish the wife who is nursing gunshot wounds in Serenje District Hospital, a quick recovery,” the President said.

  1. Its very sad indeed.
    This is the route HH has been taking before being blessed with treason.
    The guy wants to rule at all costs, even killing innocent people at rallys etc.
    Please power is given, if you dont have it dont force your way at an expense of another life – die alone if you think you are a hero.

    • I thought the police yesterday said the one who died was not the chief but a contender to the throne. Can someone clarify the situation, please.

  2. Thats what happens when politicians like ECL politicise the chiefs, churches to endorse him to exclusivity of ordinary people. I hope this has nothing to do with Politics. MHSRP

    • @ Citizen, you mean because Central province chiefs were at state house this week.
      May be Chief Muchinda refused to participate?

  3. It is an insult for lungu to say that they should have sought amicable ways when he is practising the opposite. The rule of law is lost in this country. If lungu can send pf police to hh house and cause the abuse of his family. Then who would have confidence in the legal system which won’t even have a simple petition heard due to fear by lungu. So how can you expect people to not take the law in their own hands. Please be sober iwe lungu. Rip

    • Nez will join another Tonga party which was recently formed by the former Upnd Mp because hh is in for a long time and GBM is busy nursing himself in India. Meanwhile Upnd is being controlled from prison and people like Nez have no where to go but to keep listening to the prisoner and the patient. Kikikikikiki. Meanwhile the illegal President ECL is ruling and enjoying himself.

  4. It may have been a business deal gone wrong.
    Chiefs are now infamous for selling very large tracts of traditional land to foreigners.

  6. Every cloud has a silver lining. Even the Apartheid govt finally agreed to dialogue with Mandela, releasing him from prison for him to become president of the new democratic S.A.
    In the bible, David was triumphant over the brutal one, Saul. Read 1 Samuel 27:1. Thanks

  8. What a shame and very alarming.

    But ba LT such reporting is ridiculous. Can the reporter fail to even report anything about what happened to the chief? What, where, when, how? It is the basis of journalism to structure a report based on answering those questions
